Looks like there's something on the other side of the helmet.  It's not the correct rangefinder, but something is sticking up on the left side (right side in the pic).

I think the "Heavy Gunner" Clone just re-uses the AT-RT Driver Head:



I've been trying to figure out exactly what he is, but with the small pic it's harder to guess.

Head = AT-RT Driver
Skirt/Kama = Baccara?  I think all the other skirts (#33 and Evo had holsters, this one doesn't)
Body = ?

I can't quite tell which body that is, but we know it has to most likely be a re-used one.  It's definitely NOT the AT-RT Body (missing the doo-dad on the legs) and not Bacara's body since it doesn't have the right shoulders on the arms.

I think the body is an ROTS #33 Clone Commander. If you look closely, you can make out the strap on the right arm.

Sure wish we'd see pictures of the TRU Battle Pack that is rumored to coincide with the ship...

How's this:

Nice! Can't wait to see them in person. I'm been waiting for an SA Arc Trooper for a LONG time.

Are these mods to the existing CW Arc Troopers?

It looks like, and I'm no expert, that the red ARC is the same one that was released in the CW line.

If so, kudos to Hasbro for re-releasing a highly sought after figure.

I can't wait to get the new Gunship and clones.  Very cool toys.

I believe the blue Arcs are rehashes but the red is the SA version. At least this is what has been speculated from the photos that were released.

 :-\ look back over to page 2 at the pic Valin posted.  Is it jusy me or did hasbro screw up like they did w/the pilot obi and at-te gunner with the ankles.  red arc has red ankle joint and mini gunner has blue ankle joints.  or was that how they are in the cartoon and i don't remember.

One set for me, unless my son wants one, then it will be 2. When do you think these will hit? Sounds like 2 weeks out and do you think Amazom will actually honor their pre-orders on this?

Damn, all this cool stuff at once.  :P Just one for me, please. I'm a little tired of army building at these prices.

I think the Red Arc Trooper is a combination of the ROTS Clone Commander and pieces from the Clone Wars Red Arc Trooper - helmet & pauldron.
